Indoor Skydiving 2020 | First Global Summit by FAI (ISGS) starts on 2 February with the keynote speeches at 9 a.m. Hopefully, the Roses Theater will be packed for the occasion: the capacity is close to 400.
The first summit session, which starts at 9:30 a.m. on 2 February, is a panel discussion involving three panelists and one moderator. Two of the panelists represent sports with a striking similarity to (indoor) skydiving. Both are lifestyle sports practiced a priori in the outdoors – and in a challenging contest with the "forces of nature."
That the two sports have gained significantly in popularity over recent years has much to do with the fact that both have embraced variations to their classic format. Climbing on artificially constructed walls with grips or surfing man-made waves in a pool have changed the game – but without changing its fundamentals. The results are downright spectacular.
When ISGS gets underway, you should have a fairly good idea of the concepts underlying each topic addressed during the sessions. Over the course of the next few weeks, you will be able to read up on every session, break-out session or workshop under ISGS Schedule. The first hour is covered with two write-ups on "Indoor, Man-Made And Artificial."
Remember that registration for ISGS starts on Monday 16 September and that it remains open until 11 November 2019. If you are attending The Wind Games 2020, bear in mind that you will need to extend your stay through 3 February 2020.
